NavigateStorage now offers iceWEB, a virtualized server infrastructure, with a wide range of flexibility and reliability advantages to environments of all sizes, but in order to make the most of the virtual infrastructure, you need shared storage. Features such as live migration of virtual machines require a shared storage pool, but the advantages of using shared storage in a virtual environment run much deeper.

Supporting a virtual server environment with shared storage:
* Simplifies management of the environment
* Provides the data availability required for a virtualized environment
* Enables efficient backup

Centralize storage and VM management tasks ARE EASY with the IceWEB Storage System 5000. The all-inclusive storage management feature set combined with IceWEB's VM Manager -- a unified management console for controlling all storage-related aspects of a virtualized infrastructure for VMware ESX, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V environments – is a perfect complement to your virtual server environment.
